Morningside College Reviews
Morningside has a strong standing in both academics and athletics. In 2018, the Morningside Football Team became NAIA National Champions and were the only undefeated team in the state of Iowa. Morningside also has many opportunities to learn out of the classroom through study abroad and internships. With around 1,300 full-time undergrads, each degree program has a close, family-like atmosphere. The top programs are Nursing, Business, Education, and Bio/Chem. The campus itself is small but beautiful. The city of Sioux City is relatively large, but everything you need is within a 15-minute drive.
The college visit on their senior day was amazing! My admissions counselor had made my visit made just for me and made sure that I got to do what I wanted to. The class I got to sit in on was eye opening because I got to see college students actually asking questions and one thing that really stood out to me was that the professor went back and went over a section of the lesson that some students were confused on. And that is what I look for in a college, how the professors interact with the students and how the students interact back.
Morningside college is a great private school. The class sizes are small and very teacher to student oriented. The teachers and staff at Morningside College actually care about you and your future. They are willing to do what it takes to get you on the right path; they will work with you! One thing I would like to see change on Morningside's campus is the outside activity in the fall and spring. Morningside has a beautiful campus and there is always students walking around. However, I would love to see more activities outside and involvement. Perhaps this could be done through groups and organizations on campus!
